    Ok now I need to buy a members account….
    great looking tutorial

  2. Easy enough tutorial, really useful as well! I see you have something similar on your site here, built with WordPress? I would be interested to go in and build a module for WordPress that incorporates this, would really be cool to run a blog like that.

    Imon: Thanks! I hope you enjoy the tutorials if you purchase a members account.

    Inside the Webb: I’m glad liked the tutorial! Are you refering to the PSDFAN design as being similar?

    Cool background idea…

  5. Melody says:

    Is creating a members only area easy to do? Was wondering about doing it myself…

  6. Amberly says:

    Nice Lay out.. Just waiting to see the Live site..

  7. I’m sure this tutorial is great, even if you need to be a member to read it :)
    I’m missing some notes on how to “convert” the design tutorial to a real eCommerce website like one powered by Magento.
